Preview: Kayserispor vs. Pendikspor - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Turkish Super Lig clash between Kayserispor and Pendikspor, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Kayserispor will go in search of a third consecutive triumph when they play host to Pendikspor at Kadir Has Stadium on Sunday in round 15 of the 2023-24 Turkish Super Lig season.

Meanwhile, the away side will be looking to make it back to back victories for the first time since mid-November, having returned to winning ways last time out.

Match preview

Kayserispor claimed an emphatic 4-0 victory over lower league opposition Vanspor FK in the first knockout round of the Turkish Cup on Wednesday.

First-half goals from Eray Ozbek and Yigit Celtik put Recep Ucar's men in the driving seat, after which Ahmet Malatyali and Hayrullah Erkip sealed the deal in the second half.

Prior to that, the Anatolian Stars claimed a narrow 1-0 win over Trabzonspor and have moved up to fourth place in the Turkish Super Lig table as a result.

Coming up next is a first-ever meeting against an opposing outfit who are taking part in their maiden top-flight campaign in the club's 73-year history.

Unbeaten in 12 straight matches on home turf, Sunday's hosts have established themselves as a real force to reckon with in front of their fans.

Pendikspor emerged triumphant from a 5-3 thriller against Isparta 32 Spor in the Turkish Cup at the Pendik Stadyumu on Tuesday afternoon.

Koka was the star of the show as he grabbed a second-half hat-trick to lead Ivo Vieira's men to victory in a highly-entertaining contest.

This came off the back of a disappointing 4-0 defeat against reigning champions Galatasaray, which saw Pendikspor drop to 16th in the standings.

Currently with the joint second-worst defensive record on the road, Sunday's visitors will need to keep things tight at the back to stand any chance of securing a positive result here.

Team News

Kartal Yilmaz has missed Kayserispor's last two matches through a muscle problem, and the midfielder will not play any part in this weekend's contest as well.

Hayrullah Erkip could be rewarded with a place in the starting XI after finding the back of the net within five minutes of coming on as a substitute last time out.

Thirty-one-year-old Josip Vukovic is unavailable for Pendikspor due to suspension, having crossed his yellow-card threshold against Galatasaray.

The away side will also be without the services of Emeka Eze, with the Nigerian still yet to feature since the early exchanges of the campaign.

Kayserispor possible starting lineup:
Bayazit; Carole, Attamah, Hosseini, Sazdagi; Karimi, Kemen; Civelek, Cardoso, Boa Morte; Thiam

Pendikspor possible starting lineup:
Canpolat; Asan, Sulungoz, Welinton, Sequeira; Vukovic, Lusamba; Akbunar, Romero, Kaya; Yardimci

We say: Kayserispor 1-0 Pendikspor

Kayserispor's recent home record just about gives them the edge here against a Pendikspor side who have been poor on the road of late. We are tipping the hosts to come out on top at the sound of the final whistle.
